To ensure you always have the most accurate information for using Millipore® products, we have compiled several published solubility and compatibility tables to provide a comprehensive compatibility guide for Millipore® membranes, filtration devices, ultrafiltration products, centrifugal filters, and MultiScreen® filter plates. All information presented below is based entirely upon published polymer and metal compatibility tables, not from usage experiments conducted by our scientists.
While our complete compatibility table features recommendations for over 85 solvents, solutions, and gases, we have highlighted the most common materials used with our filtration products in the corresponding sections below.
